Comfort Colors Found in Nature
Have you ever had or have an old, worn out favorite T-shirt or sweatshirt that you have had for years? It has been worn and washed for so many years, and may even have a few holes or the stitching was coming out of the cuffs or waste hem, but it was so comfortable that you just couldn’t part with it? How would you like to have that look and feel of your old favorite T-shirt or sweatshirt, without waiting years for that soft, comfortable old favorite? The Wave know the answer to this and how a certain company can give you this vintage weathered look in a brand-new garment.
Comfort Colors was started in 1975 by Barry T. Chouinard, who launched a collection of dyed apparel in rural Vermont. He started his business with $275.00 and an old washing machine. The company noticed the growing US demand for colorful apparel and launched its first collection of direct dyed t-shirts. The color palettes have changed and grown over the years, as popular color trends, such as neon were all the rage. In 1989, the revenue reached 8.9 million and the company continued to grow. In 1995, the company developed the Comfort Color brand and began to market products under its own label. In 2005, Comfort Colors offers the industry’s first garment dyed ringspun cotton t-shirts. This process creates a softer, smoother and more durable cotton. New Earthy shades were introduced in 2007 with a pigment dye collection. As the demand for the brand grew, the sales reached $27.8 million. In 2013, The Gildan Company started manufacturing Comfort Colors blank tees, lowering costs, improving quality and helping to promote their continued steady and rapid growth. Barry T. Choulinard retired in 2015, after 40 years of running the company and sold the company to Gildan for $100. Million.
The Comfort Colors Company has worked 40+ years to perfect the incomparable softness, worn-in comfort, and nature inspired hues for garment dyed apparel. Many companies have tried to imitate them, but their apparel can’t compare because they have spent years perfecting this craft. The company does this by the quality of the softest, finest cotton, to the garment dyeing process where the garment is dyed at just the right time and temperature, to the superior craftmanship. Their clothing is known for its durability and extras, such as the multineedle waistbands, the durable double needle seams, the neat double fold collars and of course their pigment dye process that produces a palette of colors, and what The Wave thinks is the best quality is the superior comfort.
Today, Comfort Colors has 95 nature inspired colors to choose from, as well as a variety of comfortable, well designed apparel.
